Description

This blade is most likely a "kris" or "keris," depending on the regional dialect. The kris/keris is famous for its distinctive wavy blade, although many have straight blades as well. The kris/keris is a symbol of power and of ethnic pride in most communities making up the Malay Archipelego. It can manifest both a good or an evil spirit.
